To Install the Pharos Print Queue on Your Laptop

  1. Click here
     
  2. Click on VLSPrint, and save the file VLSPrint_for_Lte.exe to your desktop. Minimize your web browser and then double-click on the file to install it. (Vista users right-click on the file and choose Run as Administrator).
     
  3. Click Install. Click Finish once installation is complete.
     
  4. To send a print job to a Pharos enabled printer, simply send your print jobs to the printer labeled: “VLS Print.” When you send a job, you will be prompted to enter in your Main Campus login.
     
  5. To print your job, simply walk up to any Pharos enabled printer and either tap your wildcard, or login with your Main Campus login. Choose your job and press print. 
     

Jobs will remain in the Pharos Queue for 24 hours, then they will be deleted. You will only be charged if a job prints. Print jobs will be deducted from your Pharos quota first. Each page costs $0.08 to print single-sided and $0.12 to print double sided. When your Pharos quota is depleted, jobs will then be debited from your Wildcard account. You can add money to your Wildcard via the NovaBucks system, found here. By default, all print jobs will be sent in duplex mode (they will utilize both sides of a sheet of paper). To change this, click start, printers & faxes, then right-click on the printer named "VLS Print' and choose "printing preferences". On the Finishing Tab, Change the Print Style to 1-sided printing, then click Apply, then OK.

If you have any issues installing Pharos, please contact the Villanova Law School TechZone.

How do I automatically route SPAM into my junk-mail folder?

The easiest way to prevent spam from reaching your inbox is by using Villanova's quarantine system, accessed here. Log in with your Main Campus username (ex. jdoe01) and password. Once you have entered the site, click "Blocked Senders" in the menu on the left side of the page. You can enter any address into the "Add address" box and then click "Add Sender" to block all mail from that address.

If you are still regularly receiving spam with similar components (subject, sender etc.) despite your quarantine settings, you can route these messages to your Junk Mail folder automatically by following these steps: 
 

  1. Login to your Villanova webmail.
     
  2. In the upper-right of your mailbox, click "Options."
     
  3. In the drop-down menu, select "Create an inbox rule."
     
  4. Hit New. In the box that comes up, under "When the message arrives, and:" select how you would like to filter the messages. If you are filtering by sender, another box will come up. You can enter any address into the "From" field at the bottom of this box, and then hit "OK."
     
  5. In the "do the following" box, you can choose to either delete the message or send it to the Junk Mail folder. To delete it, simply select "Delete the message," and hit Save. To move it to your Junk Mail folder, select, "Move the message to folder," and click "Junk E-Mail" in the box that comes up. Then click "OK." Then hit Save.
     

Your inbox rule should now be set up. If you have any trouble setting up an inbox rule, contact the Villanova Law School TechZone.
